Let's Talk About Love
Meet Alice: college student, great job, fun friends and secretly asexual. She swears off relationships for good after a breakup. Why can't a girl find love without sex? Must the two go hand-in-hand? Then she experiences instant attraction to a co-worker that makes him worth the risk of heartache.
Don't judge a book by its cover. We all know the cliché. Let's Talk About Love is an example. I was instantly drawn to this book because of the stunning cover: a beautiful black woman with natural hair 'fro captured in the middle of a happy moment. Perhaps snapping her fingers to a tune. Even her dress looks fab. The title is eye-catching in big purple font. Overall one of the best book covers of the year.
...Also the first book in 2018 to be shelved DNF (did not finish). I am all about fair representation so the main character's asexuality/biromance was not a big deal. But when the narrator is uber annoying? That is when I tap out.
